Sometimes you gotta toss your whole life into a burning dumpster to find what’s most important...

Beatrice Archer has always done everything she’s supposed to —worked her ass off, ignored her non-existent personal life, and kept her mouth shut. Now she’s over it. The rat race, respectability...the underwire bras. She’s taking her life back. Starting with moving to Nowhere, Colorado to live life on her own terms.

Now Bea gives exactly zero forks. Beer for breakfast. Sugar for everything else. Baggy sweats and soft cotton undies FTW. Then a much younger and delightfully attractive cop is called to deal with her flagrant disregard for appropriate clothing outside the local diner (some folks just don’t appreciate bunny slippers) and Bea realizes there’s something missing from her little decathlon of decadence...and he might be the guy to help her out.

When it comes to breaking rules, Officer Austin Cooper is surprisingly eager to assist. He’s charming, a little bit cowboy, and a whole lot sexy. But Bea’s about to discover that breaking the rules has consequences. And all of the cherry pies in Colorado can’t save her from what’s coming...

A flat out amazing love story that made me smile, tear up, and laugh so much; don’t miss Breaking All The Rules by Amy Andrews. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books


Wow, Breaking All The Rules by Amy Andrews was such an enjoyable age gap (older woman/younger man) romance and one that I simply did not want to put down once I started.  Sassy, funny, and a whole lot of sexy, I loved this book.

Bea is a 35 year old woman who had enough of being pushed around and looked over for promotion in the advertising world simply because she has boobs. Quitting her job and picking her new location by way of a dart on a map, she lands in Credence, Colorado where she spends the first two weeks holed up in her apartment bingeing Supernatural and eating and drinking all the things that are frowned upon in Los Angeles and she has zero f*cks to give about it.  Realizing she’s out of food especially food that contains sugar she heads to the local diner not caring about her appearance because she has zero f*cks; sweatpants, a stained shirt, and bunny slippers she’s enjoying her two ice cream cones when Deputy Austin Cooper rolls up to check on a complaint about a “strange woman.”  Lordy, I do not have to tell you that Deputy Austin Cooper is handsome, with an air of authority, good natured and instantly infatuated with Bea who happens to be 10 years his senior and he’ll be the first to tell you he doesn’t give one f*ck about their age difference.

Bea is a woman on the edge but Austin realizes that she’s someone he wants to get to know better. He listens to her, he puts her in the “pokey” because she wants that experience, and he gets her to tell him all the ways she wants to break the rules and he IS THERE FOR IT! I loved the way he volunteers to help her with her list and sets out to make sure she does all the things she wants. They fall into a friendship, that becomes a relationship (without saying the words) all while Bea tries to deny the fact she’s inspired to draw and paint again because of some things from her past.

I don’t want to say much more because this is one of those books you have to experience and I will tell you it was worth experiencing, in fact I may experience again soon that is how much I loved this book.  While I was a bit disappointed in the way Bea reacted and handled some issues from her previous life, hurting Austin in the process, I also loved that Austin was man enough to make a gesture, to retreat and let her figure it out, and that once she did she made things right.

A flat out amazing love story that made me smile, tear up, and laugh so much; don’t miss Breaking All The Rules by Amy Andrews.
